Julie Rodgers – The Artist

Julie Rogers (born Julie Rolls, 1943, Bermondsey, London, England) is an English pop singer. She is best known for her multi-million selling song, “The Wedding”.

The Wedding  (La Novia) – The Song

“The Wedding”, sometimes credited as “The Wedding (La Novia)”, is a popular song by Joaquin Prieto from 1964 recorded by British singer Julie Rogers. The song was included on Rogers’ extended play from 1964, which was also titled The Wedding, and has appeared on various compilation albums in the years since its release. Joaquín Prieto, a Chilean musician, wrote a song in Spanish in 1958 that he called “La novia” (“The bride”). Both the original Spanish language version, recorded by Joaquin Prieto’s brother, Antonio in Argentina, and an English translation by Fred Jay soon became well known in Europe and the United States, and numerous artists recorded versions of the song during the early 1960s.  Julie Rogers heard the song while working in Spain in the early 1960s, and by 1964 she was the featured singer with British bandleader Teddy Foster. After recording a version of the song “It’s Magic”, and releasing the latter as her debut single, Rogers suggested “The Wedding” as its follow-up, since it was a song she remembered fondly from her time in Spain. The single was released in the UK in August 1964 and marked her first appearance on the UK Singles Chart. In the mid-1970s, it was estimated that over seven million copies of the song had been sold, and for many years after its release, it was a popular selection at wedding ceremonies around the world.

The Church – The Shape

This record has been cut into a traditional English Church which is often used for wedding ceremonies.  A wedding is a ceremony where two or more people are united in marriage. Wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes. Most wedding ceremonies involve an exchange of marriage vows by a couple, presentation of a gift (offering, rings, symbolic item, flowers, money, dress), and a public proclamation of marriage by an authority figure or celebrant. Special wedding garments are often worn, and the ceremony is sometimes followed by a wedding reception. Music, poetry, prayers, or readings from religious texts or literature are also commonly incorporated into the ceremony.
